Personification


Personification: Reference to abstractions or inanimate objects as though they had human qualities or abilities. The English term for prosopopeia (pro-so-po-pe’-i-a) or ethopoeia (e-tho-po’-ia): the description and portrayal of a character (natural propensities, manners and affections, etc.).

Wisconsin has given Ted and Bernie a big thumbs up and Hillary and Donald two big thumbs up–up their  keisters! Ha ha!

Oh, and what did Wisconsin give Kasich? A greased flagpole? A barbed wire banana? A cheddar noose?

Maybe this isn’t funny. But this is Wisconsin, not Wyoming!

Cheese and crackers! Have a brewsky! Take a load off. Relax.
